Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) has been selected as a bidder for the redevelopment of the Webb Dock West automotive terminal by Australia’s Port of Melbourne Corp.
WWL currently operates 11 terminals throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. The company said the Webb Dock West’s proximity to Melbourne’s Central Business District provides a “unique chance for a new port operator to demonstrate how a terminal operation can integrate with Melbourne’s residential and commercial landscape.”
For more than a century, WWL has served the Australian trade, and today, it plays a significant role in the automotive, farming, construction and mining industries.
"We welcome this opportunity to showcase how our global experience and unique expertise can make an even greater contribution to Melbourne, Victoria and Australia," Rob Lord, WWL’s regional director for Oceania, said in a statement. - Chris Gillis
